WE HAVE A WINNER! She is Renita Dompier! Please see end of this post for this week’s Mystery Spot answer.
The Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island must employ a “think tank” full of fun folks to come up with new and exciting ideas and events. You just never know what might be happening next at the historic hotel, and this week – with no fanfare at all – they began what has to be the most fun idea of the summer for their guests . . .
The Grand is always thinking ahead, and according to a recent Matt Mikus article in the Town Crier, future plans may include: 1) expansion of the exercise and spa facilities; 2) two hotel rooms expanded into family-style suites; and 3) an ice cream parlor where Margaret’s Garden Shop now stands (Margaret’s would move inside so guests could watch florists at work). The ice cream parlor would offer such goodies as banana splits, malts, ice cream, AND Jersey muds! Ted is ecstatic! In all changes, the historical character of the hotel will be maintained, and one thing that will never change is the requirement of coat & tie for gentlemen and proper dress for ladies in the hotel and dining room after 6:30 p.m. The Grand Hotel now owns four restaurants on the Island, and the option of casual dining is available at each of these off-site dining facilities – the Jockey Club, Woods, the Gate House,and Cawthorne’s Village Inn.
Monday was a busy day at the Stuart House. Nearly 60 folks visited the museum during by 10-2 shift, and some of those folks were Bree’s Blog readers!
Personal Note: There’s a very good possibility Ted and I are going to be out very late on Thursday evening (dinner and party at Woods Restaurant following golf tournament Ted is playing in). If Friday’s blog isn’t posted before we leave for dinner, I’ll publish it sometime during the day on Friday. See you then!
Mystery Spot Contest
The object of the Mystery Spot is to be the first to identify where the object is located. When you think you have the answer, email me at email@example.com. I’ll check my email several times a day, and as soon as we have a winner, I’ll post the winner’s name at the top of this blog so you can stop guessing (you may have to refresh your page for this to show up). Is there a prize for the winner? Yes there is; but the prize is secret, and the only ones who will know what it is are the winners. To be fair, I’m asking residents of Mackinac Island to please NOT guess. This is just for readers who don’t live here . . . but would like to! And the Mystery Spot is . . . .
Again, please email your answers to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. PLEASE DO NOT ANSWER IN THE “COMMENTS” SECTION OF THE BLOG. Remember, I’ll post the winner at the top of this blog as soon as someone gives the correct answer.
